My Sale Picks: 

Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa

Have any of you tried Trader Joe’s pineapple salsa?  I love it because it’s on the mild side and I like the combo of sweetness and a teeny bit of heat.  The last time I was there, I couldn’t find it so I set out on a mission to make my own which was surprisingly way(…)

Long Island Summer Guide

Long Island Summer Guide

As Memorial Day Weekend is rapidly approaching, I’ll be packing our bags this week for a mini getaway to Fire Island (keeping my fingers crossed that the weather cooperates).  Summertime is by far my favorite time of year here on Long Island because there’s so much to do and see so if you live in(…)

Four Healthy Rice Cake Snacks

Four Healthy Rice Cake Snacks

Does anyone else get hangry at about 4 pm everyday or is it just me?  Some days, I’m really disciplined and pull out the veggies and hummus or a small piece of cheese and an apple while other days all I  want to do is sink my teeth into something satisfying (usually from the Starbucks(…)

Favorite Distressed Jeans

Target Top, old (similar splurge and save)// Joe’s Jeans (similar)// Nine West Heels// Milly Tote (similar)// J.Crew Factory Sunglasses (similar under $25)  I love a great pair of distressed jeans but at my age, they can’t be too distressed.  I think I’d look pretty ridiculous showing up at my kids’ baseball games or anywhere else in(…)

My Favorite TV Shows

My Favorite TV Shows

Image via Does anyone else binge watch shows like I do?  When I find a show I like, I watch it religiously until I finish the season.  My husband teases me about this because he watches a handful of shows simultaneously whereas I concentrate (obsess) on one show at a time.  Don’t get me wrong…I(…)

Tips for Traveling With Kids

Tips for Traveling With Kids

Recently, I took the kids down to Washington DC over spring break sans my husband (who was working) and several of my friends looked at me like I had four heads. Drive five plus hours in the car with children?  Stay at a hotel with them alone? All four kids?? Yes, yes and yes!  And(…)
